My spouse and I stopped by to take a look at Hanauma Bay from various viewing points overlooking the bay and beach from above. As we were not interested in a beach day and/or snorkeling, we did not pay to go down to the beach. There are a number of great viewing areas and we only paid the minimal fee to park the car. There were plenty of parking spots when we were there in March 2018. This place is easy to find using the GPS on your phone.

We visited this briefly because the weather wasn't cooperating. It's definitely worth seeing and if the weather is good to try snorkeling. However, be aware that you do have to pay to access the beach if you want to go down there. You can however stand at various look out points along the path down to the visitors's center and see views of the whole area and surrounding scenery. There is also a lovely picnic area where you can bring lunch and eat!

My wife and I have visited and snorkeled here since 2010. This past March 2018 trip we brought 5 additional family members who have never been to Hawaii. Their experience of snorkeling at Hanauma Bay will be a life long memory of this beautiful place. The nominal fee to enter is reasonable and yes everyone needs to partake in the 12 minute film regarding protecting the reef and grounds at the bay. This is a must for everyone young and old! The local bus goes up to the bay numerous times a day and really cheap rather then rent a car or do a tour which is a whole lot more out of pocket

Beautiful & clean beach. Nice day Trip To this place to relax or get your body tan. My recent trip there the place was very windy not much sun. However, really enjoyed myself snorkeling, all the fishes are huge and beautiful. Very colorful and enjoyed going deeper In the water to chase for the fish.

Put aside half a day and make the trip. Go early to avoid the line ups. So many fish. It’s spectacular. It’s very shallow so easy to do with little ones.
